Here’s your obligatory Avengers: Endgame spoiler cautioning . If you haven’t seen the movie yet and are still worried about spoilers, this is your one and only chance to dip out.
And now a buffer clause. Remember how Marvel recently hung the news that a gay MCU character would soon be uncovered? It was a weird thing to hype. The Marvel movies are good fun, but they haven’t exactly attacked queerness in a way that feels authentic to life in the 21 st century.
That’s relevant, because here we have Marvel celebrating something it hasn’t genuinely payed: the “girl power” scene from Endgame . You are aware of the one I want. It’s the final showdown with Thanos, all the dusted heroes are back, and hey, look at that: all the women are teamed up!( Except Black Widow .)
It’s fine. Nevermind the fact that, in 22 movies total still further, exclusively one has focused entirely on a female produce: Captain Marvel . And that one? It was movie #21 out of 22. Plenty of others boasted female leads-in or incorporated women into key ensemble capacities. But Captain Marvel em> delivered the first leading lady.
That fact turned the Endgame moment into a monstrous eyeroll. A forced-feeling action sequence that, recreation or not, felt out of place because the connection between all those strong maids has been so underdeveloped across 22 movies so far.
We got a great photo out of it though. On Saturday evening, Marvel tweeted a black and white behind the scene draw from the working day. It peculiarity every superhero from the place in outfit and stay side by side, along with manager make Trinh Tran( the two conductors are also there ).
Talk about girlfriend power.
Here’s hoping that by movie #44, Marvel will have delivered unto us a much more diverse lineup of galaxy-saving prodigious. By the time it’s over, Endgame shows a few cases prospects on that front.
Avengers: Endgame is still in theaters now, and Marvel has one more 2019 undertaking — in Spider-Man: Far From Home , a joint product with Sony — before it closes the book for good on the first fully completed story arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
